Ole Miss at Tennessee

The game is still on as far as I can tell. Given the travel conditions I sat this one out.

Andy Kennedy and the Rebels are in Knoxville. There was photographic evidence of a shootaround at Thompson-Boling Arena earlier today.

The Rebels were very balanced in their scoring in last Saturday’s 82-63 win over Mississippi State. Kennedy hopes that becomes a trend. Advance.
